Chimbo

Thanks for that. I googled Hardy Brothers Pittsworth and indeed they operated two Avro 643 cadet 11s.

They also replaced the original radials with 220 HP jacons R755. I now stand corrected after 50 years

Yep QF have ordered none they continue to use atlas and the express freighters 767. Sounds a bit like the 777 error they made anyhow .....

............now now guys stop showing me piccies of the old Beech, I've gotten over them now, had a little tear in me eye when I left with many 1000's of hrs on them so don't need to revisit the past thanks all the same Although the fast red one looks nice brudda:-) Am sure PelAir are enjoying their contract....NOT !
PC12?............sheeez me shudders just 'tinking about them

I doubt we'll ever see a side stick controller on the old Beech or another commercial Airliner as I believe the 'Frogs' have it patented. Much nicer to handle or manipulate an A/C with it I must say Like a big toy plane:-)
The only thing I never liked about the old Beech was the column sticking out of the dash.

CII is back at YRED at the moment.

Probably losing less money sitting there than doing what it was doing.

Are those token ropes under the wings actually long enough to be useful?

I see them on most floatplanes and often wonder.

You betcha, those ropes have saved many a float plane pilot from some rather embarrassing mistakes when the stuff up a dock. I know of one guy who used it as a Tarzan rope when he misjudged the current on docking towards a rock wall.
Plus they're quite handy when you're trying to hold on to it or move it around on a dock.

PianoMan - some awesome photos there! One could even say, they're cXs'y!
